Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): This mast built in 1940, replaced the former wooden tower after only 5 years. The mast may have survived World War II. As the facility was used by Polish military after World War II, it may be very difficult to get data, if and when it was demolished. In 1940 also a second mast, just 51 metres tall was built.

Important notes:
Heilsberg transmitter was built in 1930 as high power broadcasting station for Eastern Prussia. At those days this was a part of Germany and Lidzbark Warmiński was called Heilsberg. Therefore the native name of the facility is given in German.
The transmission power was until 1935 60 kW and after 1935 100 kW.
On January 31st, 1945 broadcasting was shut down and many parts of the facility were destroyed by the withdrawing German Army ( if the mast was destroyed thereby is unknown).
After 1945 the facility was at first used for the foreign radio service of Radio Moscow, but as the area got a part of Poland, for this purpose a high power broadcasting station at Bolshakovo north of Kaliningrad was built.
Heilsberg transmitter went afterwards used by the Polish Army. Further information are barely available. When the towers shown on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmitter_Heilsberg were built, is unknown.

Lidzbark Warmiński was until 1945 a German town called Heilsberg. As the station was not used for public broadcasting after World War II, a designation with Lidzbark Warmiński transmitter gives no sense.
